Save your money, ‘Glossy Black’ Galaxy S7 is coming soon

With the Note 7 consigned to the dumpster fire of history, Samsung needs something to fill up the void, as competitors are using the opportunity to sell in their offerings that normally customers might not have considered had the Note 7 still been in market. We’ve already seen the “blue coral” GS7 edge, and now it looks like it may be joined by a darker, glossier version of the “onyx black” color that’s been available from launch.

According to The Korea Herald newspaper yesterday, Samsung is readying to release its own Jet Black Galaxy S7 in December to make up for lost sales stemming from Note 7’s discontinuation. Continue reading “Save your money, ‘Glossy Black’ Galaxy S7 is coming soon”

Samsung’s AI Assistant for the Galaxy S8 may be known as Bixby

Samsung has undoubtedly suffered a huge setback due to the worldwide mishap triggered by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Not only did the South Korean smartphone giant lose out on the considerable amount of business that their newest flagship could have potentially brought them, the goodwill that was built upon years of hard work was also subjected to annihilation. But Samsung is not about to give up despite the billions of dollars it has lost.

Not to be outdone by its rivals that are betting big on artificial intelligence (AI), Samsung has been rumoured to be working on it’s own AI assistant and now has filed a trademark for a voice-controlled digital assistant called… Bixby. Continue reading “Samsung’s AI Assistant for the Galaxy S8 may be known as Bixby”

Samsung is bringing the gorgeous Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge to the US and other markets

With the Galaxy Note 7’s unfortunate fall, Samsung lost a big chunk of customers. The Note 7 had a lot going for it had it not started exploding.

Samsung first announced the Coral Blue variant for Asia but is now bringing it to other markets as well.  Continue reading “Samsung is bringing the gorgeous Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge to the US and other markets”

Samsung reports highest profit for 2 years thanks to strong Galaxy S7 sales

Earlier this month Samsung forecast its most profitable quarter for two years, and today it delivered on that promise with its Q2 2016 results.

The Korean tech giant reported a 8.14 trillion won ($7.22 billion) operating profit on revenue of 50.94 trillion won ($45.2 billion). That profit figure is up 18 percent year-on-year, while the quarter’s revenue represented a five percent annual increase.

The company’s mobile division accounted for more than half of the firm’s revenue and profits. Samsung said that, like the previous quarter, sales of its flagship Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, which have sold better than its previous Galaxy S6 phones, and a more “streamlined” approach to its cheaper phones — including the successful mid-range Galaxy J series — helped it generate impressive financials.
